of boos. >> he literally came to our house and attacked the issues that are important to us on our turf. >> and there you have it. that was the wrapup, at least from that presidency. shannon travis is live from washington, d.c., this morning. shannon, it really looks like mitt romney's just not backing down at all from this, and there are all sorts of people weighing in on all sorts of different reasons for why he may have gone to the naacp annual conference. wrap it up for me to start with whether this is going to have a residual effect in the negative or in the positive. >> reporter: well, we're still trying to weigh that, ashleigh. when i was watching it, it felt like one of those reality tv shows where the candidate on stage either lives or dyes by boos or applause. he was booed when he mentioned obama care which was a little surprising, because the people at naacp, it's not surprising that he is opposed to obama care. he got booed when he said he was a better president for african-americans than president obama is. last night at a fundraiser in montana governor romney basically pla
. to quote a part of that, from schultz to spanier and curley. the only downside for us is if the message isn't heard, and acted upon, and we then become vulnerable for not having reported it. he is referring to an earlier email written around 8:00 the night before by tim curley in which curley says after giving it much thought -- excuse me, after giving it more thought and talking it over with joe yesterday, i am uncomfortable with what we agreed were the next steps. freeh in his statement went on to say that he had interviewed more than 430 people, and his investigative group had sifted through and found more than 3.5 million emails and documents. a very, very comprehensive investigation. and devastating in many ways to penn state. >> devastating to penn state. it also poiaints a very interesting picture of joe paterno. any reaction to what they are saying about joe paterno? >> not yet, erica. but clearly, this meeting between paterno and tim curley was very, very significant. i'm sure some of the first questions being asked of louie freeh will be about the context of that email. are they f
and managing a lot of stuff. where is the story that tells us where he's going? i think that was a legitimate criticism. >> the president says it spared a question everything about a presidential candidate and the obama campaign has some questions about mitt romney's time at bain capital. a report from the boston globe says romney filed paperwork with the government where he claimed to be the sole owner and ceo of the private equity firm as late as 2002. the romney campaign says he had no input on investments or management of the company after he left to take charge of the winter olympics in 1999. at the heart of the issue, who was in charge of bain during the years from 1999 until 2001? that was the time period when bain ran companies that went bankrupt and invested in others that shipped jobs overseas. >> does virginia really want an outsourcer in chief in the white house? . >> the obama campaign ad has been running for weeks hammering romney over the outsourcing issue. >> it's false and misleading. >> the romney campaign is hitting back with its own ads. >> the obama outsourcing attacks mi

, explain to us what else this new report reveals. >> well, shepard, the report found that school administrators actually left a paper and email trail proving they knew more than they were willing to admit. on may 5th of 1998 after a boy's mother reported a possible sexual assault by jerry sandusky, the university senior vice president for business and finances own handwritten notes raise the question, quote: is this opening a pandora's box? other children? there is more. email from the school's athletic director revealed he changed his mind about reporting alleged abuse after talking with joe paterno. the report says failure to act put other children in danger. shep? >> shepard: david lee, joe paterno's family has issued a statement saying basically they don't buy any of this report. >> that's right. the panel issued a statement soon after the 276-page report was made public saying that although they are still reviewing its findings, they do reject some of its conclusions. the statement says, in part, and i quote: the idea that any sane, responsible adult would knowingly cover
and attacked the issues that are important to us on our turf. >> that was one sample of what we heard. i also talked to another woman who said that she absolutely booed but she said she was not booing mitt romney, she was booing his agenda. vice president joe biden will be coming in here later on this morning. the president is not coming to the naacp. the white house says he has a scheduling conflict and that's why joe biden is here, but, soledad, i have to tell you if romney's aim yesterday was exciting the conservative base with that speech he gave to the naacp, he may have also excited the liberal base of the democratic party or at least african-american voters because i think this crowd will give joe biden a warm response when he gets into this hall later on this morning. as for mitt romney, later on today talking about speaking to your base, he is going to be holding a fundraiser in wyoming with none other than dick cheney. soledad. >> jim acosta for us. thank you. i should mention in a few minutes we'll be speaking with florida's lieutenant gov, jennifer carol, the first african-america
the single most important thing we want to achieve is obama to be a one term president. not, not to get us out of this recession. not to promote jobs. not to do the things that needed to to be done. but make barack obama a one term president. >> let's go ahead and bring in our "news nation" politicalle panel. richard fowler with alice stewart and ann henderson, political reporter for "the washington post." good afternoon to all of you. richard, i want to start with you. did the vice president deliver today in houston? >> the vice president delivered, craig. i got to tell you, the truth of the matter is the vice president went there and told the naacp the truth. we know that mitch mcconnell and republicans want to make president obama a one term president. they are willing to do everything possible to make that happen. they are willing to stall bills, stall job creating measures, do everything to make the president fail and the vice president pointed that out today. >> there was speculation around these parts the white house deliberately decided not send the president but to send joe biden
romney has used the 1999 departure date to shield himself from claims that he was at the helm when that company allegedly drove companies into bankruptcy, laid off workers, outsourced jobs as well. we should note that one of the fact checkers that he mentioned put out a statement today saying a lot of these claims, citing with the romney camp. even if he wasn't at bain at the time of the outsource how much does all of this continue talk hurt his campaign? >> well, it certainly hurts the campaign and i will say one of those fact checkers is our checker here. you can see the romney campaign is lachg on to what these fact checkers have said and calling out the obama campaign for telling falsehoods. so far that doesn't seem to necessarily be working and certainly not enough in terms of what republicans want to see mitt romney put up, which is evidence of that he created jobs at bain and to really flush out what his record there was. but we can tell, i think, from this reaction that the romney campaign is take on some water around bain and you've seen this narrative particularly out of
